Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL
Aluminum Engine Case, 85.5mm Bore, 8mm Case Savers, EACH, 043-101-025AL


 
This Aluminum Case for VW Beetle based engines is a dual oil pressure relief, and is universal to be used on Type 1, Upright Type 2, and Type 3 engines.

It's important to note that Aluminum cases are HEAVY, ~20lbs heavier than a magnesium case. You don't realize how much that is until you pick one up!

Also, other vendors will not tell you this, but Aluminum Cases will run around 20F hotter oil temps than the same engine using a Magnesium case.

Besides the oil temps, the weight IS an issue if you have a Auto-X or Hillclimb car, putting an extra 20lbs in the worst possible place is something you should consider (do you REALLY need an Aluminum case?). Another reason we lean toward Mg cases is that, in our experience, Aluminum cases are prone to cracking -- but on the flip side, aluminum is easier to repair IF something goes wrong!

You can use this in Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3 applications.
